COUNTRY music legends James Blundell and Sara Storer will headline a major benefit concert at Cudgewa in the wake of the bushfire crisis.
They will be supported by popular locals Red Belly Black, Danny Phegan, Adam Crossman, Jammed Up, Phil Holmes, Lion Bear, Nathan Vaccaro, Adrian Clark, Emma Black, Left Arm Orthodox and Lazy Harry.
The Rise From The Ashes Fundraising Concert Weekend at Cudgewa runs on Saturday, February 29, and Sunday, March 1, is at the Cudgewa Football Netball Recreation Reserve, in one of the worst affected areas razed by the Upper Murray Fires.
Organising committee member Jo Humphrey said the weekend-long event would be more than just a concert.
"It will be a weekend of music, markets, auctions, food and fun for the kids," she said.
"This event is as much about lifting the spirits of locals, as it is about fundraising and encouraging people to come back to our beautiful district and support the locals by spending their time and money at local stores and local accommodation.
"We have a few shuttle buses running from around the area, with the addition of limited un-powered camping sites for a small fee.
"The concert doesn't start until 11am each day, so we are also encouraging people to head out for breakfast at the many local cafes."

Ms Humphrey urged people to buy their tickets.
"All the money raised has gone, and continues to go, directly to the victims of the Upper Murray bushfires for items such as farm supplies, feed and fencing," Ms Humphrey said.
